I have been browsing this site for a few days now and I have decided to post this thread.
Basically, im a student looking to delve into some film-making, will probably be alot of outside shooting and documentary style shooting. However, as a total newbie I have no idea what I'm looking for. I don't need and cutting-edge HD camcorder, I'm just looking for some recommendations for an old model, preferably larger to reduce shaking, with a good lense so the image is broadcast quality and the output preferably DV so I can edit it easily.
So does anybody have any recommendation for some models I can look for to pick up relatively cheaply?
Im hoping to spend around £500 for a used model.
